Maybe there's a way to override the default cache settings on a per app basis?

    p.s. I found that the only bit that needed changing to fix the cache issue was the DiskCacheEnabled=false bit.
    From my understanding, the current cache "fix" turns off the cache completely, there may be a newer version I have missed. If this is the case (which looks like it is from the change you are using), personally I wouldn't want that. I would rather have to hit refresh once in a while than have zero browser cache, especially on Sundays when I am tracking 3 different fantasy football leagues.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Hi Martin - So glad to hear you're listening. I have one request, scroll lock. Is this possible?

    the new settings are fine, but unfortunately I have to set them again everytime I start the Browser. Very buggy.

    Add two more things to the list - a little indicator on the side of the page that tells you how far up or down a page you are and two buttons that let you go to the top of the page and the bottom of the page instantly, sort of how Atomic Browser has it. These are the two biggest needs for me and I'm sure many others.

    Weird I didn't have that problem at all yesterday. What settings are resetting for you so I can check mine when I get home.

    There is a great patch for phones that does this nicely and the bars go away when you aren't touching the screen.

    For example background tabs ...

    Probably, this problems occurs, beacause I set up advanced browser as default browser for everything ...

    If you are concerned about the performance impact then I've not experienced any significant slow down with the above fix and it's definitely quicker than having to hit refresh and effectively having to load the page twice.

    However, if Maklesoft wanted to be truly heroic and could implement a properly functioning cache instead of using the dodgy native one (or disabling it as per the fix I mentioned before) then that would be fantastic. I suspect it may not be that straight forward though and may involve seperating advanced browser from the native browser app... Which may not be a bad thing as many of the issues seem to be inherited from the default browser!

    Whether it's feasible or not, I think it's great that Maklesoft are paying attention to their users and updating advanced browser with new functionality and fixes and it's definitely a marked improvement over the native browser.

    My current wish list (not in any particular order) would be:

    - Force links to open in a new tab instead of opening a new instance
    - Ability to reorder bookmarks
    - Returning to the same place on the page when pressing back
    - Scrollbars (auto-hide preferably!)
    - Better caching
    - Fix for the constant reloading of some flash pages (BBC etc.)
    - Fix for closing tab and not automatically reverting to the next open one

    Anyone else have others to add?

    Good god... Is it just me or does the "logins available" popup when you have a usr/pass saved in your bookmarks annoy anyone else?? Overtime the page refreshes, you use back forward, basically any movement on the page!!

    Dev -- Suggestion, make prompt to enter a stored usr/pas part of the thumbsnav bar and stop spamming.

    Anyone figure out how to open file:/// handlers in Advanced Browser?

    When opening links from the box.net client, when you change use the method changing the metadata.json files to make Advanced Browser the default browser, it opens file:/// links, but AB cannot read it, so you have to copy/paste it into the default browser.

    How about getting AB to open .ipks correctly with Preware like the default browser?

    View page source and have source selectable to copy.

    Oh yeah, good point, I'd forgotten about that one. I stopped saving logins in AB because the popups were irritating. It seems to completely ignore the fact that you are already logged in.

    I will add on:
    A browser that works right...

    Of all ether strengths this tablet has, it is brought down by the horrid browser. Pages commonly fail to load right (especially long pages), don't display right and is just slow in general. Advanced browser needs to ditch the crappy built in support, and make real browser...

    I can't believe that anyone at HP put a browser out there that won't allow you sort and organize favorites. How long before we see this on the advanced browser?
    Bought the family touchpads and love dual boot.

    Sites with long product lists do not load all the pictures. This also happens in the stock browser, but I'm hoping this can be fixed in advanced browser.

    Same here also

    In preferences, turning off Enable JavaScript can help with this. But it's an inconvenient workaround.

    and disappear and come back and disappear.

    not a huge deal, to me.....I can still see the addresses.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel
